CHARMING COTTAGE WITH UNIQUE BEACH RIGHT ON CHAMPAGNE POND

Kapoho Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Charming cottage with unique beach! One of only 6 homes that front the popular Champagne Pond. Walk out the lanai, climb the ladder into the crystal-clear inlet, and swim with the turtles to the large part of Champagne Pond...

CHARMING COTTAGE WITH BEACH right on Champagne Pond! For those lucky enough to have stayed in the Beach Lots community of Kapoho, you know there are only 6 homes that front the very popular Champagne Pond, and this is one of them! Walk out the lanai, climb the ladder into the crystal-clear inlet in front of the cottage, and swim out with the turtles to the large part of Champagne Pond. For those who haven't yet experienced Champagne Pond, it's a huge geothermally heated warm pond, with incredible snorkeling in calm warm waters with sea turtles and colorful tropical fish.

Let the video show you more.

BUT WAIT! THERE'S ALSO A WHITE SAND BEACH! A rare find in East Hawaii, but the owners of this cottage decided to build their own rock wall overlooking the pond and fill it up with that white sand that slips through your toes. Sunbathe away in sunny Kapoho while you relax on lounge chairs and feel that ocean breeze.

IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT LOCATION at Champagne Pond Cottage. This truly charming two-bedroom cottage was built in 1957 by James and Mildred Kuwana. It survived the 1960 lava flow that covered Kapoho. Mr. Kuwana and another long-time resident had the lava flow dredged to create what is known today as Champagne Pond. The home was refurbished in 1994 and just recently upgraded with a new kitchen and bath, complete with granite countertops and beautiful windows.

THE CUTE KITCHEN IS WELL EQUIPPED with refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, rice cooker, pots and pans, cutlery, dishes, and there is a full-size washer and dryer. (The kitchen has no conventional oven but there is a charcoal BBQ on the lanai.) Windows surround the kitchen on three sides to bring in the view.

OHIA WOOD FLOORS GRACE THE LIVING AREA, which has comfortable seating, a flat-screen satellite TV with a gazillion channels including CD-quality commercial-free music stations, and a DVD player. The outdoor lanai serves as the main dining area with a picnic table overlooking the pond.

THE COTTAGE HAS A STRICT MAXIMUM OF ONY 4 PEOPLE ON THE PROPERTY AT ANY TIME (SORRY NO INVITED GUESTS ARE ALLOWED AT THIS PROPERTY) DUE TO THE SMALL SEPTIC SYSTEM. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds. The bedrooms are small but work well for a family.

CHAMPAGNE POND COTTAGE OFFERS A GLIMPSE INTO AN OLD HAWAII HOME, with upgraded features and a location you will never forget!

Year-round rate range is $115 - $255 per night, depending upon party size and dates of your visit. Cleaning fee is $95.

Reviewer Comments:
The house and tidal pools were a wonderful place for adults and my 2 kids. The snorkeling in the clear warm water was a delight. This was my favourite place on the island. I understand we were fortunate with the weather and had sun or part cloud for 4 days.

This place is in an amazing location and was very clean and comfortable. We had a good time and would recommend it to any of our friends going over to the Big Island and looking for something off the beaten path.

Reviewer Comments:
We decided to go to Hawaii this year and visit the Big Island since neither of us had been there. The journey started with searching for a place on the VRBO website. For the second part of our trip we decided on going to Hilo and found this place. It was absolutly great. It has its own private pond in the back and you can snorkle direct out to the ocen beach from it. The house was small but perfect for the two of us. The kitchen has been remodeled and there are tons of windows. Dont be scared but there are small gecko's that make there way into the house. Over all it was a great stay and we had a blast!!!!!!! I would recommend this if your just wanting to relax and hang out.

Reviewer Comments:
Cutest little house ever, hard to find in the dark but we made it. Once we opened all the windows it cooled right down. Kitchen and bath were clean. My girls 18 and 21 loved snorkeling in the pool, we had a turtle in the pool next door. Didn't get great cell service, but that is my husbands biggest pet peeve that I am always texting...and I couldn't so it made for a more relaxing vacation.
